Moms Club Picnic

A couple of months ago, I was lucky enough to find an organization here in town for stay-at-home moms. It's a great group of women with young children who organize play dates, field trips, holiday events, charity projects and more.

They've been amazingly helpful during my bed rest, too, bringing meals to us twice a week so there is less burden on us to cook. And, once the baby arrives, they'll do even more as far as dinner goes. They've offered babysitting, house cleaning, errand running, etc....and I'm just getting to know them all. It's been overwhelming and we are so grateful for their help.

Although I can't participate in most of their activities right now, we did manage to attend the annual picnic. I stay seated while Blake chased the boys and although it was a hot day, everyone had a great time.

Carter rode a horse for the first time!!!!

Jack was most interested in this lawn chair, which he would unfold, sit down in and carry around everywhere.

I love this picture.....click on it for a close up. Jack gets such rosey cheeks in the heat.

Ducks to talk to!

Carter on another ride with a friend.

Fainting goats!

And, finally a hay ride out into the beautiful farm land.

Time to go. Carter could have stayed there for a week, had we let him. There is just something about a little boy being outside with farm animals and dirt and dust. He loved it!
